Summer of Love - Winning the Battle

Belief in God means obeying the Father and loving your siblings.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • In what ways have your parents shaped your view of God?

  • How can you both love and fear God? Where do you fall on the scale between “All powerful being to be feared” and “buddy Jesus”?

Read: 1 John 5:1-5

  • Why is keeping God’s commandments a sign that we love Him?

  • What would a relationship look like if you liked the adults but hated their children, talked badly about the children, or mistreated them?

  • What helps you or hinders you from seeing others as your siblings and recognizing them to be children of God?

  •  John says that every child of God overcomes the world. Do you feel like you’re overcoming the world? Why or why not?

  • Do you face your struggles alone or with faith? Why?

  • What does it mean to overcome struggles by faith?

Prayer: Pray that you will love your siblings and obey God’s commands.
